Chilly Dogs woof! Kevin of the North 2001 (PG-13)

A woofer that deserves to be buried. Slacker Kevin Manley (Ulrich) learns he's inherited land in Alaska from his grandfather. But in order to collect he must compete in the 1,000 mile dog sled race between Anchorage and Nome, Alaska. Babe Bonnie (Nestridge) is willing to help the tenderfoot out while sneaky lawyer Thornton (Nielsen) is among those trying to undermine Kevin's every chance. At least the similarly themed “Snow Dogs” had a certain amount of kiddie humor to sustain it. 102m/C VHS, DVD . CA Skeet Ulrich, Natasha Henstridge, Leslie Nielsen, Rik Mayall, Lochlyn Munro, Jay Brazeau; D: Bob Spiers; W: William Osborne; M: Harvey Summers.
